Question about Numark TT1650 Turntable

1 Answer

Hi there! i just bought a numark tt1650 and an ortofon arkiv cartridge, connected it properly to my old technics a700mk2 amplifier (phono, grounding and all that) but it still has a buzzing problem especially when turning the volume up more than 1/4 of total volume. it's not that really loud buzzing you get when you disconnect the ground wire but it's still very annoying and gives you a headache when listening to records. it doesn't come from feedback from the speakers also, it's not placed close to the speakers. got any ideas on what could be wrong? could it be a problem with the electrics on the amplifier, the whole back phono entrance situation? it goes gggzzzzzzzz or GGGGGGZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ in higher volume :)

Try connecting the turntable to one of the other inputs like CD / tuner etc and see if the buzzing disappears. if so then your turntable has a built-in pre-amp so it can be connected to any input except 'phono' as this would obviously be used for turntables without a pre-amp.
a lot of modern turntables now have built-in pre-amps to compensate for certain amps and receivers made without a phono input and can now be connected just like a CD player, tuner etc.

hope this helps.

I have a Numark TT 1610 and it has the old school red and black audio out put wires, and just playing some of my old records is what i wanted, but its sound comes through my speakers so soft i have to...


It looks like your amplifier has not got a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" built in, or you have it connected to a tape/cd input instead of a phono input. All you need is to search online for one and that will connect between your deck and amp and it will then be the same volume as anything else connected to the amp.

How do i hook a numark tt 1625 turntable to a regular home stereo amplifier...does the ground need to go into anything specific?


Turntables require a special input in the amp (usually marked PHONO) because they require high gain and different equalization - and yes, that ground wire has to go to ground unless you want to get a super annoying 60Hz hum from it!
If your amp doesn't have a phono input, you're going to have to go out and get a phono pre-amp and connect it between the turntable and the amp.
Best of luck!

Im new with the use of the record player since im tired of MP3's. i bought a Numark TTusb turntable connected everything, but the sound is low. i have to crank the volume to the max, and only get low...


A turntable use a magnetic cartridge and its output is only 5 to 10 millivolts.A moving coil cartridge is even lower,.2 to .5 millivolts(thats 1/2000 of a volt)in contrast, a mp3 puts out a 300 to 900 mv signal..so does a CD player. Your turntable does not have enough signal.You need to get an amplifier that has a phono input. Years ago,radio shack used to sell phono preamps that could plug into a tape or cd input.The other option is to buy a used mixer that has a phono input.The mixer output can drive the cd input easily,as the max output from a mixer is 1.5 volts to 2 volts.

Tone Arm acting as arial


A metal tone arm has a ground wire that connects it to the back of the stereo via the Turntable chassis. If this wire is broken (inside the deck of the turntable) or the ground to the stereo is not done, you can have this issue. No, the ground through the audio connectors is not sufficient.

Pioneer pl-200 turntable one channel is dull and muffled


I think we need to do more diagnosis. Did you try swapping the channel cables Left-to-Right so you're sure it is in the TT and not in your Phono preamp?
If it's still in the TT and always on the same channel with two different cartridges you probably have a wire problem in the tonearm/shell or interface between them.

No signal going into mixer.


Did you buy the gear new? If not, the issue might be with the meter. Also, sometimes the signal isn't loud enough to engage the meter, so try cranking up the Trim and Volume (Master & Line), of course, make sure the volume on your amp is down, so you don't blow anything.

Good luck.

Turntable skips during playback


The only thing I can say is to make sure you set up your cartridges correctly - click HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS on BALANCING YOUR TONEARM properly.

If, you've balanced your tonearm, and set up your cartridges correctly, then you should not have any problems. Unless, your tonearms are damaged. But this is highly unlikely. I just think you need to balance properly.

Another note, Ortofon Concorde have a design flaw, in that they don't connect very well to the Technics tonearm. The Concorde's, have short and stubby connections on the rear, making for poor connections to the tonearm. Ortofon has addressed this issue by releasing the Ortofon OM series cartridges, and mount them to standard Technics Headshell.

If you still can't figure this out, feel free to give our techs a call 24/7 @ 1.866.668.1596 ext 1 - they can walk you through setting up, and properly testing your tonearm to see if it's damaged or not.
